Walkers of the week
EVERY October, the VicHealth Walk to School Program encourages primary school children to walk, scoot or ride to and from school.
It’s a great way to help students learn healthy habits and achieve the recommended 60 minutes of physical activity, every day.
Walk to School month runs from October 7 to November 1.
Over the four weeks we will profile a ‘Walker of the Week’ from each of the five primary schools within the shire, who will receive a $20 Sportfirst voucher, kindly sponsored by Mansfield and District Community Bank.
